Tim Sweeney

ZZT is an ANSI character-based video game, created in 1991 by Tim Sweeney of Potomac Computer Systems which became Epic MegaGames in 1992. It remains a popular MS-DOS game creation system. ZZT itself is not an acronym for anything; its title was chosen so it would always appear at the bottom of newsgroup listings. It was later jokingly mentioned by Sweeney as being short for Zoo of Zero Tolerance, which has mistakenly become a popular belief.

A Sokoban clone for Windows. Tip: There seems to be a bug where upon completion of Level 1 the game won't advance - the workaround is that you select Game -> New (F2) immediately after emulation starts .

World created using the ZZT engine. Please note that emulation via DOSBox frequently suffers from slow performance, laggy input, and audio issues, especially on more demanding ZZT worlds. An alternate emulator for ZZT such as Zeta or a modern source port like ClassicZoo may provide a better experience.

Chex Quest 1 & 2 with beginning and end animation. The game starts with a batch file called "LAUNCHER.BAT".  For some reason it poops out in this online version of DOSBox. It works fine on my home computer though. I was able to get the two videos (SMK files) to play using a DOS version of Smacker Player.
